On June 14th. 2016 the second official MOMathon was held by the monasterium.net-platform. The goal of the event was to fulfill small tasks with volunteers to enrich the database with metadata. In contrast to the first event, which was held as an offline event at the ICAR-US Meeting in St. Pölten (AUT), the 2nd. MOMathon was an online-event. So anyone was able to participate after a short registration on the MOMathon-Webpage. MOMathon: Citizen Science at monasterium.net weiterlesen
